. the republican congressmen have done exactly what they wanted to do. they had a playbook when obama was elected and they checked off everything on the checklist. make him an illegitimate president, reduce women's rights, roll back women's reproductive rights, keep illegals out of the country, stop everything that obama wants to do because that is what they wanted to do, to take as many days off as they want to, they go out and raise money for their elections. they are doing exactly what they want to. with just two weeks left in this first session of the hundred 13th congress, what do thing needs to be done here, what are the must do's before congress gets out of town at the we of the month? caller: need to pass a budget. they need to do something about immigration. need to have a raise for people on social security so need to have a raise for people on social security so they can live in dignity for their last couple of years in life. host: with just two weeks to go do think there is to do that? doler: all they're going to talking about obamacare until it starts working. host: yeste

obama is claiming. the right of the contingency to essentially stand above the law. i'm not saying that president obama is a monarch. by that was the issue that gave the impetus to this clause in my view. it did not change very much. ter people like benjamin civiliti wrote a very good paper about when the president could refuse to enforce laws and he basically said that it could only be done where there is an intrusion upon executive power. by the way, that was what was involved in the meyers case that we talked about or referred to earlier ch or if it was clearly unconstitutional and that second issue, he established had to be very, very clear so the president does not exercise the authority. this is how he would respond. we don't have to hyper ventilate to look at a problem and say this is not about what who the president is today or what he is trying to achieve. what is lacking from the other side is any notion of what the orld will look like in a tripartheid system if he cannot avoid any major deadline and exclues whole classes of people from enforcement. what is left in that o
